The Guardian Gets Re-Design Seizures, Hates My Opinion
March 30, 2010 in Disasters
Oh, what to do when your favorite website gets infected by trendy-glasses-wearing shitbirds, who then do what trendy-glasses-wearing shitbirds do, which is shit all over everything because someone without any common sense has somehow paid them to shit all over it? And when that website solicits your opinion on the changes the shitbirds have made? Well, you give them your opinion. Unfortunately Pravda The Guardian didn’t enjoy my opinion, so they deleted it.
What was so horrific about my opinion on the changes enacted by trendy-glasses-wearing shitbirds? Did it contain language that somehow had never appeared in the Comments section before? No. Did it allude to the promotion of child molestation or enjoyment of the oeuvre of Michael Bay? No. Did I even publicly call them “shitbirds”? No. Luckily for me I’ve never trusted The Guardian’s comments section not to eat my comment, so I actually copied it prior to posting. And here it is, below:
I suppose all those people with the trendy square glasses have to do something to earn the ridiculous amounts of money they receive by saying a lot about fuck-all. You know who I mean – I can almost hear them describing these changes-for-change’s sake, and it makes me glad I don’t know any of them personally.
And, you know – a lot of people don’t actually visit a newspaper’s site to look at shitty videoblobs with their monotone and disembodied voices telling you nothing that could have been garnered in a nice block of simple text. Just because you now have the tools and the means of distribution to actually do these things does not automatically mean that it’s always good.
I’ve yet to hear anyone – anyone – say “wow, did you watch that amazing video on The Guardian?” or “I’m so glad I heard <writer’s name> speaking words I can actually read myself – it really brought it alive!”
As much as you’ve tried to already defend it, much of it is in a complete and utter mess. No, I don’t like it, because I thought you had it pretty good before, and yes, I’ll learn to live with it, because The Guardian is one of the best news sources on the web even though you’re giving me now giving me the eye-dizzies with this zig-zag crap.
Honestly – you’re now making The Independent’s front page look like a bastion of taste and legibility (ie, the majority of the content is now way below “the fold”).
And “Trending”? Really? Are you purposely looking for a punch in the bollox?
I can’t wait until the next bunch of trendy-glasses-wearing shit-spurters come along to hopefully unfuck it.

Just to remind you – I’ve seen all of the words I used published in the Comments section before.
I’m guessing what some particular trendy-glasses-wearing shitbird didn’t like was being compared unfavorably to The Independent. But, you know, thanks for giving me something to write about, besides Ricky Martin shocking no-one anywhere.
EXCITING UPDATE: I’ve now joined a FACEBOOK GROUP protesting about this re-design nonsense, and hopefully shitbirds in general. NOW WATCH THEM RECANT AND SCURRY OFF TO UNFUCK EVERYTHING WITH GREAT HASTE AND MAYBE A MODICUM OF SHAME!!11!! Honestly, by the time y’all wake up and read this EVERYTHING WILL BE BACK TO NORMAL AND THIS POST WON’T MAKE ANY SENSE. Oh, and if you do join, let them know Wordsmoker sent you, because I’m not being annoying enough this morning. xoxo
